In Memory of a Special Friend & Dog

My heart is heavy because our friends' dog passed away yesterday. She was so loving, joyful, and a big part of our friendship. We enjoyed her at the park, at the lake, while camping, snow shoeing, and just hanging out. She will be missed very much. I hope our friends find peace and comfort in knowing that they gave her the best life she could have ever needed or hoped for.

In Memory of Bailey
"The Best Dog on Earth"
